Dodge turned up the heat on its Durango with the introduction of an SRT model for 2018. Now, thanks to Mopar, you can spice things even further with a handful of accessories and performance upgrades for the popular 3-row SUV.

Unveiled on Wednesday at the 2018 Chicago Auto Show, the items can be added on 2018 Durango R/T and Durango SRT models and give the vehicles that custom look straight from the factory.

If it’s just looks you’re after, there’s a set of racing stripes in five available colors (Bright Blue, Flame Red, Gunmetal Low Gloss, Low Gloss Black and Sterling Silver) that can be added for $1,195. There’s also an interior package that adds carbon fiber accents and a few other touches for $2,495.

For those seeking actual performance gains, Dodge is offering a high-flow exhaust system. It’s a stainless steel design that aids exhaust flow and improves the sound of the Durango. Adding the exhaust on the Durango R/T’s 360-horsepower 5.7-liter V-8 will set you back $1,595, while on the Durango SRT’s 475-hp 6.4-liter V-8 it will set you back $1,850.

The final item is a set of lowering springs. The kit, which costs $325, lowers the ride height by 0.6 inches, improving the handling of the SUV as well as adding to its aggressive stance. Performance gains are said to include less rear-end squat during acceleration, less nose dive under braking and reduced body roll while cornering.
